The Sandy Spring Slave Museum is tucked away off of Rt. 108 in Sandy Spring (18524 Brooke Rd.), so it’s easy to miss, but if you haven’t stopped by yet I highly recommend doing so ASAP.

I stopped by this past weekend and was able to experience a new limited time exhibit “ The History of Black Schools in Montgomery County”. The exhibit highlights the education for black students in Montgomery County, integration of the schools, pioneer educators and the importance of education to the achievement, sustainability and cross-cultural communication of the people from the 17th century to today.

The exhibit runs through October 7th and the museum is open Thursdays from 10:30am-1pm and Saturdays and Sundays from 2pm-4pm. Group tours are available at any time on any day and can be booked by e-mailing contact.sssm@gmail.com

Photos will be posted on our Facebook page today and Instagram account tomorrow (@TheMoCoShow).
